Wind come in from bump-out fireplace

I had a bump-out fireplace at home. Winter time, it is horrible...wind is coming from the fireplace into the family room. I have taken down all the siding (outside) and ensured that there were insulation behind the plywood, and also used the Great Stuff insulation to fill in whatever gap that I can find, and add additional insulation at the roofing (bump-out). but the condition only improved a little. This spring/summer, I am considering to take down the plywood and roofing and re-do the whole insulation. Anyone have any experience that I may need to be aware? or is there anyone who have SAME problem/experience on the fireplace and have it resolved? Will using the bricks to seal off the base on the bump-out unit help at all?

What kind of chimney does it have? How high is it? Can you post a pic from the outside to photobucket.com ?
